Now here's a fresh, vibrant look for a kitchen! And the dining area offers a great view for a breakfast.
It was a hundred-year old church in the Little Italy neighborhood of Chicago. But Linc Thelen Design and Scarfano Architects turned it into a modern house. They used the cavernous interior to create a spacious residence for a family.
This is 1 of 8 old churches turned into homes rounded up by The Contemporist. They all make use of large spaces in novel ways to create private abodes. I especially like the retention of window frames that are unusual in modern houses.
